UEFA’s designations, explained:
Twenty-five players maximum, including two goalkeepers. A minimum eight places reserved for locally trained players. If a club has less than eight locally trained players, its number of players on List A is reduced by the number of locally trained players missing.
What is a locally trained player?
1. Players who trained at the same club for three seasons between the ages of 15 and 21;
2. Players who trained at another club in the same association for three seasons between 15 and 21 years old; the number of these players cannot exceed four with regard to the locally-trained players on List A.
A player may be on List B if he was born after 1 January 1997 and if he has been qualified to play for the club concerned for an uninterrupted period of at least two years since he was 15 years of age (16-year-old players may be registered if they have been registered with the participating club during the previous two years). Each club may enter an unlimited number of players on List B during the season, but the list must be submitted before midnight (CET) no later than the day before the match in question.
